Abstract: In the title compound, [CdBr2(C30H26N4S)]·C3H7NO, both the complex and solvent molecule lie on a crystallographic mirror plane. The CdII ion is coordinated in a disorted square-pyramidal CdBr2N2S environment with one of the Br atoms in the apical site. In the crystal structure, the benzimidazole ring systems are involved in weak intermolecular [pi]-[pi] stacking interactions [centroid-centroid distances = 3.606 (2) and 3.753 (2) Å]. Further stabilization is provided by weak intermolecular C-H...O hydrogen bonds. The methyl H atoms of the dimethylformamide solvent molecule are disordered about a mirror plane.
